Weekender Staff Picks

Spring is in full swing, and we’ve got some gigs to sling! Along with the full gig guide here we have a handful of special shows happening across our venues this weekend.

Namely, Sierra Ferrell finishes off her very successful Aussie tour with a farewell Sydney show at The Great Club on Thursday night. If you were lucky enough to get a ticket, you’re in for one hell of a night. If you didn’t, get familiar with all things Sierra here and let’s hope she gets around another Australian tour soon.

Come have breakfast for dinner with us on Friday at the House of Music and Booze as Lola Scott launches her new EP ‘Breakfast for Dinner’. After landing cover star on Spotify’s ‘Indie Arrivals’ playlist, as well as massive support from Triple J and national radio, Lola is taking her infectious indie-pop sound to our stage for one-night only! If you haven’t got tickets yet, snap them up to catch Lola in an intimate venue before she’s selling out theatres.

The nations capitals most beloved punk-rockers, Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers are keeping your pockets and hearts full with a FREE gig on Friday at one of the inner-wests most revered pubs, The Vic on the Park. Armed with the acclaimed EP Pretty Good for A Girl Band featuring hits ‘AHHHH!’ and ‘Girl Sports’ this is one show not to miss. Supported by Sydney icons Downgirl.

“Although, considering they are gearing up to release their debut EP ‘Pretty Good For A Girl band’, that doesn’t seem like a fair analysis. Because at this point, there’s no telling of the scope that Teen Jesus will attain” – Beat Magazine.

If you’ve recovered from our Thursday and Friday offerings, Heavy Demo Vol. 1 is your Saturday destination. The team behind Heavy Demo are putting on a party at the House of Music and Booze headlined by punk legends Straight Arrows. It’s the first of what will be a growing cult event in Sydney’s buzzing music scene. Grab a ticket here and you’ll be in the running to win a pair of Audio-Technica earbuds, ‘cause why not?
